PTEN Pathways & Targets

The 2014 meeting is intended to bring together a diverse group of scientists studying various molecular, genetic and biochemical approaches to the analysis of the PTEN pathway at the cellular level and in development and diseases including cancer, diabetes, and neurological disorders such as autism. Junior and senior researchers will join to discuss their latest research findings and technical approaches toward the analysis of the PTEN pathway. Particular emphasis will be given to model systems, disease pathogenesis and therapy.

Session Themes:
* Upstream Signaling in the PTEN Pathway
* Downstream Signaling in the PTEN Pathway
* PTEN in Stem Cell Function, Development &
Disease
* Cancer & PTEN Signaling
* Metabolism & Aging
* Complex Regulation of PTEN Signaling
